About Us


Holistic eye health for every member of your family.

We know that how we manage your vision today has a big impact on how well you’ll see the world tomorrow.

The key is spotting potential eye health issues before they become major or irreversible. 

To achieve this our practice utilises the latest technology, such as our OCT-A machine, which allows us to see changes in the blood vessels beneath the retina and macular, a warning sign for Glaucoma or Macular Degeneration. By picking up on these problems at the earliest possible stage we can advise you on the best options to manage your condition going forward. 

But along with caring for your vision, we want you to look great too. 

That’s why we offer a wide range of contemporary frames, with something guaranteed to suit everyone in your family.

Protect your future eye health by visiting us in-store or booking an appointment here.

Your  Eye  Health  Is  Our Priority 


Eye examinations can help you discover vision problems that may need attention. Some eye disorders are silent and can only be treated if detected early; a thorough eye examination is therefore recommended at least once every two years for everyone – even if you are not experiencing any difficulties.

Our Services

Children's Vision

A child’s early years are especially important for their development. If their visual system is not functioning well, it could result in them struggling to read and falling behind at school, or having difficulty in sporting activities. Often, they would be assessed for a behavioural problem.

Eye Examination

A comprehensive eye exam is more than just a vision check. It also assess the entirety of your eye health, which can provide a good indication of your overall health. Glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration are only some of the things we look for as part of the check.

Contact Lenses

Contact Lenses

Whether you’re looking to try contact lenses for the first time, or it didn't work for you in the past, our experienced optometrists are adept and enthusiastic about coming up with solutions to fit your particular lifestyle visual needs, including multifocal and even specialty contact lenses.

Myopia Control

The continued worsening of your child’s shortsightedness can be a worrying experience. While there is no definitive cure at the moment, there are treatment options which have been shown to be greatly effective in slowing down the progression, including Orthokeratology. These can be suitable for children as young as 5 years old.
